Moving Tips from Aero

  • Appliances: Drain, empty, disconnect, unplug, and tape down appliance doors and electrical cords (some may require interior packing of movable parts)
  • TV’s: Disconnect aerials and fold up; tape cords of all electrical appliances and lamps
  • Stereos: Secure arms, turntable covers, cords, and wires
  • Inform movers of: Delicate, aged, and weak pieces; loose legs; broken pieces; and loose veneer
  • Mark boxes containing glass and/or delicate items as “fragile” and, where appropriate “this end up”; also mark them for proper placement in the new home
  • Tape bottoms and tops
  • Organize: Attics, toolsheds, and garages. These areas are very time consuming for the mover (rakes, brooms, shovels – tie or tape together). Mowers and gas cans must be drained. Notify banks and other financial institutions about your move
  • Dressers, Desks, and End Tables: Should be emptied of breakables, pencils, pens, and paper clips and other items that would jam drawers. Clothing, bedding, and linen can be left in drawers

    On Moving Day

    • Prior to starting the job, advise movers of what will and will not be moving
    • Before leaving old residence, make a thorough inspection to be sure nothing is forgotten
    • At your new residence, it is very helpful if you direct the movers to the proper place for each item as it is brought in. Use signs or sticky notes directing furniture or boxes to specific areas
    • When finished, check the truck yourself to be sure nothing is forgotten
    • Elevator moves: check with building management for elevator use on moving day. It is very helpful for you or a friend to help watch your goods in the hallways, elevators, and landing areas
